AVE you thought how appropriate a greetings telegram is for almost any social occasion . . . how specially suitable it is for use on the occasion of a birth, or for a birthday, a betrothal or a wedding, a holiday, an anniversary, a sporting victory, or a success at school or elsewhere?

A greetings telegram is delivered on an ornamental form enclosed in an envelope to match. The gay colours on the form and the bright envelopes give added pleasure to your happy thought.

There are six designs of greetings telegrams available for your use at no additional charge . . . Social, Birthday, Congratulatory, Mothers' Day, Easter and Christmas and New Year.

To the business man, too, the greetings telegram is specially attractive, offering, as it does through its personal approach, the unique opportunity of establishing and maintaining the goodwill of customers.

In the following pages the several types of ornamental telegram stationery are illustrated. Imagine the appeal these have when used on occasions for which they are appropriate. Nothing else takes the place of the telegram for conveying a message of greetings or congratulations.

To send one of these telegrams write your message on the usual form, available at any Post Office, adding the word "greeting” immediately before the address. If a telephone subscriber, you need merely to call "Telegrams" and dictate your message to the attendant, specifying the particular form on which you wish your telegram delivered.
